Dedication 

A Special Angel 
Claire Marie Krupica 




"To everything there is a season. There is an appointed 

time for everything, and a time for every affair under the 

Heavens. A time to he horn and a time to die, a time to plant 

and a time to uproot the plant, a time to weep and a time to 

laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance. To everything 

there is a season and a time to every purpose under Heaven. "

Awards 

Betty Barry Trophy 



Tracy Tabacco 
Kathy Szostak Trophy 



The field hockey team had an excellent season this year finishing with a 13-3-1 record 
while also qualifying for the state tournament. This year's team was led by tri-captain 
Annie Sturgis, Laura Barbagallo, and Tracy Tabacco. An amazing defense commanded 
by goalie Nicky Pienta and outstanding backs Rebekah Eaton and Stefanie Boudreau 
helped propel the Lady Rangers to one of their best seasons. Seniors Melanie Bushnell 
and Tina Ibraheem provided additional strength in the forward line with help of junior 
Virginia Stacy and sophomore Kristen Belair while the three captains controlled the 
midfield. Merrimack Valley All-Conference honors were awarded to Laura Barbagallo, 
Annie Sturgis, and Nicky Pienta. Junior sweeper Blair MacDonald was also named 
Merrimack Valley All-Star for the second year in a row. Barbagallo and Pienta were 
named Eagle Tribune All-Stars as well. The team was guided by fourth year head coach 
Karen McLaughlin and assistant coach Joe Robillard.

Mitchell John Myers 






We were proud of you, the moment you were born, 

and always will be! 




We couldn't be more proud of you, from the little things to the big accom- 
plishments. Swimming at two months old; everybody couldn't believe it! 
Especially your grandparents, who love you very much. Remember your first 
day of school? It doesn't seem so long ago. How proud we all were at your 
First Communion and Confirmation. I remember Dad's face, when you scored 
your first goal, he couldn't have cheered any louder and me with tears in my 
eyes. At twelve, you received your scuba license, the youngest in your class. 
Now, our boy is graduating from high school. It goes to show that when you 
put your mind to it, YOU can accomplish ANYTHING! 



W e've shared so many experiences together. Remember the camping experience 
with the mice? Parasailing with the jellyfish. All the movies we saw during school 
vacation; skiing with Dad, and seeing your sister being born, to mention just a few. 
This is only the beginning; we will share a lot more exciting times together. 



JTvemember my favorite sayings: 
"Home is the place where character is 
built, where sacrifices to contribute to 
the happiness of others are made, and 
where love has taken up it's abode." 
- Elijah Kellogg 

"One cannot collect all the beautiful 
shells on the beach, one can collect only 
a few, and they are more beautiful if they 
are few." - Anne Morrow Lindbergh 

Years from now it will not matter how 
much money you have or what kind of 
house you lived in, but how much time 
you spent with your family. 

Remember God gave you free will; 
choices to make; with prayer he will help 
you chose wisely. 



116 M.H.S. 





Y ou will never know how much we love you till you have a child of 
your own. Then you'll realize. Dad always brags to everyone that the 
world would really be overpopulated if everyone had a son like you, 
because you're such a good kid. Abbey loves you very much, even if at 
times it doesn't seem so. You're her "big brother" as she says it, "I love 
you Mitchell," Love Abbey. We wish you the best that life has to offer. 
Love, Mom, Dad & Abbey.

Good Morning Jen, 
The trip through this chapter 
was definitely too quick. It 
seems like only yesterday it 
was off to school for the first 
day. You've given us a lot of 
wonderful memories to look 
back on. Words of expression 
don't come easy for me, but I 
couldn't let this day go by 
without wishing you 
'All the World has to offer !' 
Share it, enjoy it, and learn 
from it for those Days. And, 
you will have them When 
Life gives you Lemons ??? 
Love, 

Dad & Kathy 







Michelle Higginbottom 

Dear Michelle, 

Thank you for that baby smell, 
endless hugs, sticky hands, 
laughing, tears, roller-skating, 
dandelions, paper chains in red and 
green, riding your bike, sand 
castles, angles in the snow, jingle 
bells, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth 
Fairy, and the guy in the big red 
suit, wishing on a star, apple 
picking, pumpkin carving, snow 
men, teaching me to be a better 
listener, and to color in the lines, 
how to be a good friend, and how it 
feels to love someone so much. I 
can't begin to tell you how proud of 
you I am. Congratulations on your 
latest success, graduating from 
high school. You have such a 
bright, I mean sun glasses bright, 
future. 

Reach for the stars. 

All our love, 
Mom, Sean, 
and the Gallaghers

To my daughter Heather: 

I have watched in amazement: 

At the little girl you were 
To the woman you've become. 

A little girl who always depended on me 
To a woman who has become of her own independence. 

A little girl who always needed my assurance 
To a woman who is so self-assured. 

A little girl who took small steps to achieve her goals 
To a woman who is taking strides to accomplish her path 
in life. 

A little girl who had my love 
To a woman who still has and always will have my love. 

I am so very proud of you and watched in amazement 

At the little girl you were 
To the woman you've become. 

I Love You,
